Dear Roger, Just got into another yet another fight with a faculty member devoted to keeping his head down and his wallet wide open-- at least that's what I think of most folks here in D.C. in bad moments. So your letter came at an especially welcome time. Thank you very much indeed! Frankly, I'm delighted to consider you a friend. Please call me whatever feels best. I consider you are co-voyager in long term effort to do a bit to promote some decency. May I suggest that that after removing the personal references to me (as kind as they are), you send the part about the really great people under attack Ritter and Galloway to the CASI listserv which is I fear in danger of turning into all to much a mushy, empty intellectualism and a a forum for attacking the best and most principled lke G. & R.. (While, curiously doing some top-notch work -- go figure.) Don't know what the list you mention is, but if you figure that it includes epidemiologists with some conscience, then please send in my plea. Boy oh boy I know about grauate student $$$ poor, so may I suggest instead of money a letter to the CASI listserv and a note of support directly to Galloway. Even great folks, I think, can get discouraged. thanks again, tom VnStroope@aol.com wrote: > Tom, I am sorry that I do not have the necessary contacts or expertise > to help with the very important work you are attempting.
